A brilliant red color. Too sweet on the nose, but this is not the case with the taste. The sour cherries are the most prominent flavor, which is good, and the sweetness mostly fades away. Feel is nothing remarkable.

Pours a nice red color with a medium head that fades quickly. Nose is more towards a cherry syrup than real cherries, no noticeable lambic funk. Taste is overly sweet in my opinion, a little artificial. Can't say there is really anything that would make me want to go back to this. If you want a sweet kriek, Lindemans, while not exactly great, is certainly a better choice.

Pours a pretty clear red color with pink head. Cherries on the nose, sweet cherries, and a little funk; follows onto the palate. Finishes sweet with cherries.
